INFORMATION / Terminology

Position names

In the IHF Education Centre, positions are named consistently to refer to players in both defence formations and attacking formations. To make things clearer, we summarised the main position names in three languages (English, German and French).

In diagrams or animations, attackers are marked by triangles and defenders by circles.
